Samsung sync out

I accidentally washed my phone in the washing machine. Is there any way to open the face plate to dry the inside or is out for good.

    I also washed mine and it works electronically after drying out but the vibrator must have short circuited and wont go off--even with software adjustments. I have the face plate open--two little screws behind the camera and tabs on the sides to pry out--and I think that I see the vibrator between the speakers. I would like to disconnect it but am not sure if that is an option. Does anyone know how to do so?

    I also washed my Sync in the washing machine, the LCD works perfectly but the keypad doesn't do anything. The buttons light up and everything but nothing happens when i press them. Any help would be appreciated.

The phone was dead anyway with the vibrator shorted out, so I got adventurous and pryed it out of its slot--it was just glued in--and cut it off right at the base of the "button". My phone works perfectly now but without the vibrate option. I didn't use the vibrate option anyway since I am retired and no longer need it muted in meetings, etc......

Why isn't my Samsung washing machine front loader dispensing the softener?

May have dried and calcified if it was put in and (for example) the machine was accidentally not put on to cycle for some time preventing it from being washed through. This could cause the foundation to a blockage perhaps.. If this were me id try a pipe cleaner (gently) and boiling water (use caution dont want burns) as a first port of call to attempt a free fix

After I am finished washing for the day, is it okay to leave the lid up to dry out inside the washing machine? Also just how important is it to put the sound barrier under the machine? Thanks for your...

The sound barrier is not needed for proper operation and leaving the lid open is desirable and may help prevent rust on poorly plated parts, something becoming more common with time. Consumer Reports has been tracking the lifetime of a broad range of common major appliances and they are getting worse, not better.

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

I accidentally washed my LG VX5300, please help.

When electronics get wet, they MUST be taken apart as soon as possible and dried out. It probably has some wet areas inside that may have fried some connections. Water or corrosion by the water have short circuited something inside. There is still hope I hope to either take it apart and inspect and clean the corrosion off of all electronics or take it to an electronics shop and get them to do it.
